    About me

    I have experience in Costume for Performance, Maskmaking, Panto, Music hall, Music acts, Costume hire. Wardrobe, Dressing. Festival structures, Woodwork and Carpentry, sculpture.

    I can turn my hand to most things!

    I live in South East London, I have a van, a car so am completely transportable. I also have a professional level camera for photography and film. I'd be very interested in working outside of London for long or short periods as well as in the London bubble, particularly on any jobs that go abroad. I'd also like to move into film and music videos.

    I have worked in different areas of theatre giving me a holistic approach to all of it; as well as Design for Theatre/ Television/ Labels I am part of CRANK Theatre (formerly Let Slip). We create surreal and highly stylised film and theatre about topical issues, making them slick, fun and accessible. Our most recent piece was Machines For Living; a show about Brutalist Architecture and the Legacy of High Rises in the UK
